Forget Xconfigurator. It's not going to help on the new powerbooks since
the ATI framebuffer doesn't yet work with the Rage Pro LT that's in this
box, yet.

Here's what you do.... downloading Xautoconfig from
/pub/yellowdog/devel/RPMS on our ftp site.

Install it, and run "Xautoconfig".
Make sure that xfs is running. (Run 'ntsysv' and make sure it's enabled)
Then simply type: startx
